Saving My Life

Anything I post on here about PCOS or any other condition, is general information or information I've accumulated in my experience having PCOS or other conditions. I'm not a doctor, so nothing I say should EVER take place of a real diagnosis from your doctor. My eating plan described on this blog is one I've made for myself and I'm constantly changing it according to my body's needs.

March 21st & 22nd 2010 Food Log


Breakfast: 2 slices Ezekial raisin bread, 1 tsp. butter, 2 slices turkey bacon (no nitrites, chemicals), 1/2c. Naked green juice  (This meal was eaten as more of a brunch since it was kind of late)

I did not eat lunch since I ate late. We over to my Dad's for the cookout. I think I did pretty considering I was surrounded with a LOT of foods that I could have chosen to eat.

Snack: fresh grapes, fresh blueberries, baby carrots, a few pieces of wheat chex (took them from the snack bowl, but didn't have more than like 5 pieces and ONLY the whole wheat kind. I was really shocked my Dad made fresh fruit and veggies as the snack foods. I coached him before the cookout and I think he understood that I wanted to do well at dinner. I thought it was really sweet of him to make healthy snacks. :) )

Dinner: 1 burger w/ whole wheat bun (I know it was whole wheat b/c I brought them) w/ 1tbsp. chili, 1tbsp. coleslaw (homemade so I know what was in it), a sprinkle of cheddar, salad w/ 1tbsp. dressing, 1 turkey breast hotdog w/o bun, 1/2 turkey patty w/o bun. (I tried to fill up on a lot of protein so I wouldn't be tempted to eat tons of junk although I still ended up w/ 5 french fries on my plate....I ate 2 and threw the rest on hubby's plate so I count that as a victory) Niki made little cups of chocolate cake w/ mousse. I took one to share w/ my son. I took 3 bites and he ate the rest. I feel like I did pretty good overall even if I didn't stick to what I said I'd do 100%. I felt like I ate "normally".


Breakfast: 1c. Organic pumpkin flax granola, 1/2 banana, 1c. almond milk

Lunch/Dinner: (date w/ hubby...we went out before going bowling and to the arcade. I whooped his butt in air hockey and got 3 strikes in my third game of bowling...hehe) 6-7oz. grilled steak, turnip greens, pinto beans, coleslaw--(1/4-1/2c. of each thing except the coleslaw...I ate less of it) 1 corn muffin

Snack: 1c. Naked green juice

This is all I ate yesterday and I was satisfied since I had a big meal at lunch. All the family stuff is over for right now and I'm getting things back to normal. :)


  1. Such a good girl! You really are accountable and that's the biggest part of the battle.

  2. great job Kim.
    I think your food log looks awesome. Mine always looks the same.
    eggs, or yogurt...some sort of fruit, granola bar..then meat and veggie for dinner.
    I lack food imagination.

  3. I love how detailed your food list is. And great job on eating out well! That's always such a challenge for me.
